Postcardly Review & Giveaway (Closed)

I was given the opportunity to review a service called Postcardly. Postcardly is a really neat and simple service that turns your e-mails into real postcards which are delivered by U.S. Mail. Now you can share photos with family and friends that don't have a computer. 


How Postcardly works: You create a unique email address for your recipient(s) at the Postcardly website along with recipient(s) shipping info., (i.e. Grandma@postcardly.com) . You use your e-mail as normal to type a message and attach your image. To preview the postcard use the e-mail address (preview@postcardly.com) before you send it to your recipient (Grandma@postcardly.com). Then you get to see what your postcard will look like. Once you see your postcard is exactly the way you want it then you send it to your recipient (Grandma@postcardly.com) , and she will receive it through the U.S. Mail in just a few days.


You can use Postcardly anywhere in the world as long as you have access to e-mail. However, the recipient must have a U.S. address, which also includes military bases around the world. I was really impressed with how fast the service worked and how inexpensive it is. They have plans to suit  individual needs starting at $4.99/mo. for 5 cards including the cost of stamps.  You pay less than $1.00 per postcard and that includes all of the costs involved. I sent a postcard to myself and I chose to send my logo so I could see the final product, and the post card came pretty fast in the mail. 

My husband can also use this service through mine as I gave him e-mail permission through the website. Now he can send Postcardly postcards out on the road to our family and friends when he sees something interesting or when he misses them. I recommend Postcardly it is a great alternative to send photos, and the postcard turned out great!
